In eleven chapters, Metadata for Digital Collections by Steven J. Miller provides an accessible and practical how-to-do-it metadata manual. This review explores the book's content with an emphasis on how useful it might be to serve as a reference work in visual resources collections. The book is well-organized and clearly written with extensive illustrations and examples making it easy to find information quickly and focus on specific concepts. The reviewer suggests visual resources professionals consider sharing the other resources that they are currently finding most useful through additional book reviews.
